My twelve-year-old daughter knows a lot about makeup. That's probably because she spends all her free time watching You tube videos of makeup tutorials.
Today, she gave me a makeup tutorial. "Mom, you really should do your eyeliner differently. I think Urban Decay eyeliner would work better than what you're using."
"Here, let me show you what kind of makeup you should use to make yourself look pretty." She brought up the Sephora website. If you don't know what Sephora is, it's a huge makeup store. "Here," she said. "Naked Urban Decay eye shadows. That's a basic palate."
I looked at the price - $18.95.
She scrolled down. "You need some lip stains, too."
"Lip stains?" I said. "What's wrong with my lipstick?"
"It doesn't last all day."
Price of the collection of lip stains: $365.00.
She continued this way, going through eyeliners, foundations, blush, brushes, and mascara. By the time she was finished, she had about $800 worth of products. "That should do it, Mom. If you get all of these and use them, you might look good."
